The All-Star break is over. Now, the focus turns to the postseason. Strap in for the stretch run of the 2016 MLB season.

Don't you ever do that to me again, baseball! Do you hear me? NEVER! I thought you had left forever. I drove all around looking for you. Yeah, OK fine, I was playing Pokemon GO too and there was a Charmander down the street, but you still had me scared to death. I didn't know what to do with myself. The ESPYs were dumb. I caught up on Game of Thrones, so that was nice. But there was a void that only you can fill!

I'm sorry, I don't mean to yell at you, baseball. I love you so much. I missed you. You're back now and I can finally relax. Can we just hang out tonight? Just the two of us? I would like that. Very much.

Oh, here's the lineup:
